    Question Shower or no shower

    At my gym there are two 300 + lb. powerlifters. From the point they walk in and hit the weights, they always have a huge stench.

    After their workout, forget it! Run and hide! These guys are the nicest guys. Further to boot, they wear the same 3 sets of close for the 6 days they train. They also wear big Sweaters and winter coats in South Florida. They believe, them more you sweat, the more fat you lose! On the other hand, when they do their cardio, they run on the treadmill at 3.2 mph!

    My question is this ( I thought I'd amuse you with the background of the question)

    Do you shower before, after or both before hitting the gym?

    Why not the gym showers? Don;t be afraid to flash that Ass, Kuso. Some guy might come along and whipper snap it with his towel and give you the glowing smile and knowing wink? Just like this cartoon dude except don't ask me where is big thumb might go!

    I shower only after my workouts. I smell nice and flowery, so I don't need no stinkin' pre-workout shower.

    I shower before bed each night and then I shower after my workout as it is at 5 a.m so therfore.. and I do it at home ... I only go in to the gym on leg days. everything else I need I have at home.( and let me tell ya women are I think possibly at least from the gym shower rooms I have seen nastier than men.. I wonder would they treat the bathroom at home like that. eww and I never walk barefoot in any public bathing area either.. eww eww )

    Could've been me, seyone! Be cautious if you see me in the gym! I also do not wash my hands after taking a dump in the middle of my workout and start touching the most common equipment too! NOT!!!!!!

    Sometimes I fart in the gym, and that smells pretty bad. Usually I'll fart in one place, then walk away.

    UH, why would one shower BEFORE sweating????

    Call me dirty if you will, but I shower AFTER any physical activity ...well except you know what Then that would be a "before and after shower" case..Unless you are already in the shower

    Depending how I feel, I sometimes shower before and after the gym, bringing me to 3 a day, sometimes though I only shower once a day (lately been losing sleep over work).

    Leslie,

    Some people sweat walking out to the cars here in South Florida. But, I assume the dudes, come home from work (sweat all day) eat something, shower the first stench off, workout and stink again!

    But the problem with those guys is that they almost where the same clothes day in and day out! I can't picture these guys doing the wash every other day either.

    Also Leslie, to amuse you further, these guys where these winter jackets when they do their cardio and surely they ARE NOT washed either.... EVER! LOL!

    I place another $100 betting these guys do NOT shower and take their showers before work the next morning! Imagine what their bed sheets smell like? Hmmmmn... I think I need to order some Bacon now! LOL!

    Sounds like you need more fat in your diet to aid in digestion. Sicko.

    Dave did you actually just say Bacon? You know how sensitive i am on the bacon subject. I am leaving now.

    BTW i shower at home afterwards, cause the showers are cold at my gym. We dont have much hot water here in Canada.

    I only shower after. But then again, I haven't been working up much of a sweat lately...

    Kuso, is this a common problem we have?

    I try to tell it like it is everyone and yes, at the time and still to this day with those two, it IS very disgusting! My GF even went up to them and said something.

    If I offended or grossed any one out, sorry, my apologize. Funny though, it has gotten a lot of responses, (isn't that right, Kuso?)

    J'Bo- Sorry about the word Bacon. It was not directed at you.

    After, although I should have one before to cause I've got naturally curly hair and I'm letting it grow so I have to wear a Baseball cap in the gym cause I can't do a damn thing with my hair in the morning until I have a shower.

    Geez, I sound like a women, time for a TANK haircut.
    Cool
